Sodium erythorbate is a water-soluble antioxidant that can act as a corrosion inhibitor in some applications. As an antioxidant, it can help prevent the oxidation of metal surfaces and thus reduce the rate of corrosion. In the oil and gas industry, sodium erythorbate may be used as a corrosion inhibitor for pipelines, storage tanks, and other metal equipment. It can be added to production fluids, such as crude oil and natural gas, to reduce the corrosion of metal components in the production system.
Sodium erythorbate is primarily used as a food preservative in the food industry to enhance color retention and prevent oxidation of pigments in various food products. It is commonly used in meat processing, canned fruits and vegetables, beverages, and bakery products.
